I’m currently having trouble with shadow detail being emitted from a light fixture I downloaded. The shadows it casts on the wall are all demented and jaggered.
At the moment, this wall’s light mass res is 1024 (which is already high for a small wall), but look at all the jaggered edges! The only way I can eliminate this is if I bump up the res to 4092 - which is way way to much.
I re-modeled the light fixtures myself and sure enough, I got the same problem. Thing is, if I do a test and put a point light in front of a cube and cast a shadow on the same wall, there are no jaggered edges around that shadow. So I know it’s not the wall. And I’ve already tried increasing the res of the light fixture itself.
So why do the shadows emitted from my light fixtures become jaggered?
Your help – is my blessing.
